Emma’s Story

“I wasn’t living my best life.”

What was your life like before the Joyable program?

I knew that I was feeling isolated and depressed, and I knew that I was not living my best life, but was not sure exactly where to start.

I had tried going to a counselor in person previously, but could not fit it into my busy schedule and trying to narrow down counselors who were both covered by my insurance and could meet my needs was an overwhelming challenge.

The thought of meeting a new person and developing a client/patient relationship with them also seemed like something that I just didn't have the emotional energy for.

What was your biggest fear before starting?

My biggest concern was honestly that I would not benefit from the program, since I sometimes give up on things too quickly. I was concerned that because it was online, I would not be held accountable for completion, and it would just be one more failure to add to my list.

Instead, Jill (my coach) was very present and supportive, and was able to communicate with me often, touch base when I seemed to disappear, and I felt that she really cared about my progress. Having someone available to talk to about the program definitely made it more useful and rewarding for me.

Trying to narrow down counselors who were both covered by my insurance and could meet my needs was an overwhelming challenge.
This program has significantly decreased my sense of helplessness, which has led me to believe in myself again and achieve these positive actions.

How has your life changed since you started Joyable?

I am feeling much less isolated, and much more purposeful and empowered. Joyable has not only given me the courage to make many dramatic life changes that I have been desiring but fearful of, it has also helped me feel more comfortable in my own life experience.

Changes all the way from answering a phone call to standing up for my needs in social situations have helped me in my daily life to feel more confident. Moreover, I had the chance to change careers, stand up for myself in my workplace, confront some of the social challenges I had been avoiding, and move across the country to be closer to my family and live a sustainable lifestyle.

The changes have been very exciting for me. This program has significantly decreased my sense of helplessness, which has led me to believe in myself again and achieve these positive actions.

I have hope for the first time in three years that my life will be meaningful and exciting!

What was the best part of the Joyable program?

I felt like there were a few different factors I loved. I really appreciated that the exercises were self-paced and available 24 hours a day online - it made the program more approachable and accessible.

The exposures were interesting as well - I would never have done those for myself, but having support to face my fears and reflect on the experiences was incredibly helpful for me to understand the significance of my thoughts on my behaviors.

Tell us about your coach.

Jill was incredibly helpful to have as a coach. She was warm and professional, and I felt more and more relieved by our interactions as time went on.

I was worried that she would judge or penalize me when I was struggling with an exercise or had become stuck, but she was very empathetic and while she pushed me to succeed, she did so in a respectful and non-invasive way. I never felt like she was judging me, and she listened well.

Her knowledge of and interest in feedback regarding the Joyable method helped me to feel safe enough to accept her help.
